  • Ataluren

  • Congenital absence of the vas deferens
    Congenital absence of the vas deferens (CAVD) is a condition in which the vasa deferentia reproductive organs, fail to form properly prior to birth.
  • Warren Warwick
    Warren J. Warwick was an American pediatrician, notable for co-inventing a chest wall oscillation device called the Vest Airway Clearance System, or "The Vest", a mechanical vest for clearing the lungs of children with cystic fibrosis.
  • Lumacaftor/ivacaftor
    Lumacaftor/ivacaftor (brand name Orkambi) is a combination drug available as a single pill that is used for the treatment of cystic fibrosis in people who have two copies of the F508del mutation in the gene encoding the cystic fibrosis transmembrane conductance regulator (CFTR) protein.
  • Little Yellow Duck Project
    The Little Yellow Duck Project is a UK-based international project started in 2014 to raise consciousness of the need for organ, stem cell and blood donors and to encourage small random acts of kindness.

  • Cystic fibrosis-related diabetes
    Cystic fibrosis-related diabetes (CFRD) is diabetes specifically caused by cystic fibrosis, a genetic condition.
  • Distal intestinal obstruction syndrome
    Distal intestinal obstruction syndrome (DIOS) involves obstruction of the distal part of the small intestines by thickened intestinal content and occurs in about 20% of mainly adult individuals with cystic fibrosis.
  • Lumacaftor
    Lumacaftor (VX-809) is a pharmaceutical drug that acts as a chaperone during protein folding and increases the number of CFTR proteins that are trafficked to the cell surface.
  • 65 Redroses
    65_RedRoses is a 2009 documentary film about Eva Markvoort, a young woman from New Westminster, British Columbia, who suffered from cystic fibrosis.
  • Ivacaftor
    Ivacaftor (trade name Kalydeco, developed as VX-770) is a drug used to treat cystic fibrosis in people with certain mutations in the cystic fibrosis transmembrane conductance regulator (CFTR) gene, who account for 4–5% cases of cystic fibrosis, and is included in a combination drug, lumacaftor/ivacaftor, which is used to treat people with cystic fibrosis who have the F508del mutation in CFTR.
